    does our luggage leave the ship and go directly to our disney resort after the cruise, or do we pick it up and bring it ourselves to the magical express.

    Ahoy, Jacqueline!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It sounds like you've booked my favorite vacation: a Disney Vacation by Land and Sea! It's always hard leaving a Disney Cruise after a voyage filled with memories and magic. Knowing we have an exciting vacation ahead of us at Walt Disney World Resort makes disembarking the ship a little easier!

    I'm so glad you've booked Disney Cruise Line's Ground Transportation from Port Canaveral to your Walt Disney World Resort hotel! Unfortunately, your luggage does not get sent directly to your Walt Disney World Resort hotel ahead of you after your cruise. The night before debarkation, you'll receive Disney Character-themed luggage tags to place on all your luggage. You will need to pack your bags and have them outside your stateroom door by around 10:00 p.m. Be sure to leave all medications and toiletries out of your bags because the next time you see them will be in the Cruise Terminal the following morning!

    Your luggage will be waiting for you inside the Cruise Terminal, organized by the Disney Character-themed luggage tags, the morning of debarkation. Once you disembark the ship after breakfast, you will need to head to the baggage claim area of the Cruise Terminal and pick up your luggage. There will be porters available in this area, too, if you'd like assistance with collecting your bags! Once you and your luggage make your way through U.S. Customs, you'll head to the motor coach to continue your magical vacation on land!

    Jacqueline, I hope this was helpful! If you have any other questions while you prepare for your upcoming Disney Cruise, please sail back and visit us again!
